Mankell, Henning  
A Treacherous Paradise
1905: At nineteen, Hanna Renstrom leaves Sweden to seek a better life. But none of her hopes - or fears - prepares her for the life she will lead. Before long, she finds herself a widow twice over, and the owner of a bordello in Portuguese East Africa, where colonialism and white supremacy rule. She is isolated within society by her profession and her sex, and, among the bordello's black prostitutes, by her color. Over the next several years, she wrestles with loneliness, and with the racism she's meant to adopt unthinkingly. As her life becomes increasingly intertwined with the prostitutes, she will make a decision that defies every expectation society has of her, as well as those she has of herself.
